American Idol Top 36 finalist and Minnesotan Jesse Langseth isn't getting the super hot press her fellow Minnesotan Casey Carlson received when her bikini shots were discovered. Langseth will have to fend off the Idol nuts who found out she's spent time in the clink.
For what, you ask? Hold your breath. A drunk driving offense! Unfortunately the rest of the country doesn't realize that everyone in the Midwest has a DWI. We're all driving drunk 24/7.Celeb stalkers TMZ broke the story this weekend and pulled up her super attractive mugshot. The site says, "She pled guilty, spent four days in jail and was put on probation for two years." She's been a free woman since last December.
The Star Tribune was on the case shortly after and reported the details:
A check of court records by the Star Tribune shows that Langseth, the sister of blues prodigy Jonny Lang, was convicted in August 2007 for gross-misdemeanor drunken driving in St. Louis Park and that her blood-alcohol content was at least. 0.20 percent.
Can I DWI ruin your chances on American Idol? Isn't she more American by making poor drinking choices?
